Fire Sprinkler Week 2015

Fire Sprinkler Week 2015 (16th – 22nd March) is a week of fire and rescue service activity, raising awareness of the benefits of sprinklers to businesses and educational establishments. [br][br] 

The theme of the 2015 week is Business Continuity, focusing on the support that fitting automatic fire sprinkler systems can provide to business and to social (educational) continuity. [br][br] 

The objectives of the week are: [br][br]

  • To encourage businesses to consider how fitting sprinklers can help to protect their valuable assets (people, buildings, machinery and supplies) from fire, or can mitigate the effects that a fire has upon their assets, helping them to achieve business continuity.[br][br]
  • To encourage schools and other educational establishments to fit sprinklers, allowing them to potentially minimize the major impact that a fire can cause their students, staff and community.[br][br]
  • To promote the economic, social and business benefits of having sprinklers to business owners and leaders, and to dispel some of the myths about sprinklers.[br][br] 

We are aiming to communicate the benefits of Sprinklers to the Business Community: Business owners across all sectors, business organisations and those who supply and support them; the Educational Community: Leaders of Schools, Academies, Further and Higher Educational establishments, local government; and to other influential stakeholders: policy-makers, construction companies, insurers, architects and designers.[br][br] 

Business Continuity [br] 

In 2015, Sprinkler Week will be focusing on the benefits of sprinklers to businesses, including educational establishments such as schools and colleges. In a time of austerity it becomes more important than ever for businesses and educational institutions to ensure their key resources are protected, enabling them to be in a position to continue operating after a fire. It has been suggested that eight out of 10 businesses may not recover after a major fire.[br][br]
